Activate USB WiFi on startup on Fedora Core 4

I have set up a Zonet ZEW2501 USB WiFi adapter on Fedora Core 4 x86_64. This uses a zd1211 driver. My question as a Linux newbie is how would I set it up to activate on startup? It's not seen in the Network Device Control GUI.

Well I created the file ifcfg-wlan0 and saved it in these 3 places.


Here's the contents of ifcfg-wlan0.


It seems to startup at boot and acquire an ip address. And it can now be seen in the Network Device Control. But it's still not working. After boot up I can type dhclient wlan0 from console and it works fine. Or from the Network Device Control, I have to activate it and then it will work. I may be way off here. What else do I need, or do I need to go a totally different route?
